After hearing that JD had a huge crush on Ashley, Howard demanded that he come in to meet her. JD obliged – and asked her out: "I don't know what kind of guys you're into or whatever but I would take you out to lunch or something."
Ashley wanted to test the waters first: "Maybe we can go get a hot chocolate. If you like." JD thought that was just fine. Howard jokingly tried to get JD to impress Ashley with his nerdy interests ("Tell her how you love fantasy football.") and – as Fred played JD's techno theme – dance skills.
Ashley loved JD's moves: "He's got, like, little fist-bumps...have you been watching 'Jersey Shore'?" JD played it cool: "F' that show...Facebook me."
Later, Howard asked JD if he'd followed up on it, and JD said he had: "I gave her my card...I put my cell phone [number] on the back." [Later, on the Wrap-Up Show, Gary revealed that she had emailed him after the show to thank him and had mentioned going out for hot chocolate with JD.]
